Description

Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings covers various structures, effective parameters in seismic improvement, and other factors in seismic loading. The book offers guidance for a seismic reconstruction project based on the interpretation of publications FEMA 440, FEMA 172 and ATC 40. It includes real examples of completed and approved projects to stabilize the seismic improvement issues of existing buildings. Six perfectly executed examples, with complete refinement details, such as modeling, step-by-step improvement studies, and executive plans and seismic enhancement images are included. In essence, the book explains the classification of non-structural elements and how to carry out seismic reconstruction studies.

Key Features

  • Provides a fully functional way to evaluate, model and present details of a seismic rehabilitation plan for a building
  • Presents real seismic refurbishment models and step-by-step methods for providing examples (including images, tables and charts)

Readership

Civil engineers, Structural Engineers and Construction Researchers
